Developed by Subcommittee: F04.16
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This practice covered a typical procedure and guidelines for conducting the rat in vivo hepatocyte DNA repair assay.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F04 on Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices, this practice was withdrawn in December 2013. This standard has been withdrawn with no replacement because the assay is based on very old work and detects a very small subset of genotoxin and carcinogens.
